    Hi all,

    completely new to Garden Ponds but having bought a new place in Derbyshire and hopefully moving in next Thursday, I was very pleased to see an established and "to me" large garden pond has been built. At present the inhabitants are Goldfish which the previous owner cleans regularly.

    I am experienced within the Marine Tank world so really looking forward to this new adventure and would appreciate any hints, tips and advice as I go along.

    Looking forward to chatting and taking part in what seems to be a pretty active forum.

    Cheers

    Chris of Kilburn - Derbyshire

    Hi all and thank you for the very warm welcome. The puppy is Harvey a cross breed between Cocker Spaniel and a Poodle. One of 3 dogs, one German Shephard cross with collie and a crazy Border collie. I will try and upload some pics when i get the chance.

    This is a better picture of the "Hobbit" BBQ house. Great use to be had during the coming months. For those who watch Game of Thrones, winter is indeed coming. 3.JPG
